Conferences & Convenings Committee Seeks New Members
The ISSOTL Conferences and Convenings Committee seeks (self-)nominations from the ISSOTL membership. The committee oversees the annual conference and other convenings for members of the Society. It works closely with local conference hosts and adjudicates proposals for future conference sites. The committee ensures the continuity of key ISSOTL features of these events (e.g., proposal review, conference pedagogy, New-to-ISSOTL and other standing sessions), and reviews conference evaluations to recommend revisions as appropriate.
According to the ISSOTL Bylaws (Article VI, Section 1), the President-Elect chairs the committee. The President, a representative from the last conference host, a representative from the next conference host, and the Treasurer serve on the committee. The committee has a minimum of nine members, with preference for inclusion of a representative from each future host.
If you are interested in joining the committee, please send your (self-)nominations to Conferences & Convenings Committee Co-Chair Nancy Chick (firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 15. (Self-)nominations should include
- nominee’s name,
- institutional affiliation, and
- a brief statement describing why the nominee wishes to serve (typically a three-year term) on the committee.
